Once you set and achieve some goals, the next stage to consider is to reward yourself.
It’s time to move away from the food rewards that have become commonplace and all too easy. You don’t want to achieve your exercise-related goals then take two steps back by going out to dinner and eating unhealthy food as a reward.
Rewards should be things that push you to strive for your goals but leave you feeling fulfilled, as opposed to filling yourself with food.
What are appropriate things to reward yourself with?
Rewards can be simple things, such as:
- Going to a movie
- Going to the beach
- Buying new clothes
- Hanging out with friends
These rewards will leave you feeling better about yourself than any food reward ever could.
The bigger the goals, the bigger the reward can be. So set those goals, inspire yourself with the anticipation of a reward, and work hard for it!
Soon you won’t ever see food as a worthwhile reward again!
